Also at Monday’s meeting, Plankton Energy presented a minor project site plan to install six solar canopies over existing parking lots behind Faith Community Church on East Main Street.

At its meeting last Wednesday, the Planning Board unanimously approved an open space and landscape preservation development special permit for a proposed nine-lot development on Hayden Rowe Street just north of the intersection with College Street.

Superintendent Carol Cavanaugh, in an email to the schools community, stated that there are no plans to switch to a fully remote model the first week after winter break. The schools went fully remote the week after Thanksgiving, prompting some to speculate that a similar strategy might be used again to prevent a spread of COVID-19, especially with people traveling or welcoming family and friends into their homes during the recess.
